Cultural Connections are a series of guided video conferencing programs designed to connect Indonesians and Australians in the context of current CoVid 19 conditions. The programs aim to achieve the following outcomes:
To establish and support people to people relationships between Indonesians and Australians
To develop cultural connections that support future exchange programs and future international travel
To provide opportunities for language development.
To help prepare participants should they decide to participate in exchange or immersion programs.
Through a facilitator, individual participants will join an initial group video conference at which they will be introduced to the program, and connected to an Indonesian/Australian partner. Following initial introductions and familiarisation activities partners will be encouraged to consider planning a cooperative project that develops cross cultural understanding and provides an opportunity to develop meaningful relationships.
Over a series of six weekly video conferences, IndoAustay facilitators will lead participants through exploration and development of their project with the end product being a short, informative presentations to other participants.
